"I received your package today. Oh my, it made me cry how beautiful the layettes are. How can I thank you for this great work and including us as part of your family of hospitals. God bless the makers of these layettes for their gift of love and compassion." —Rosemary
"I appreciate having beautiful coordinated layettes and keepsakes in all the appropriate sizes to offer to each patient and her family as these sets do not exist to be purchased on short notice." —L & D Nurse
"I can't believe that someone made this with such thought, care and perfect workmanship. It has taken a lot of worry off me to see my baby boy cared for so respectfully." —Anonymous Parent
"I am on the front line providing care to patients so I witness the impact of this ministry on families. The layettes and keepsakes are given to families from every walk of life who find themselves thrust unexpectedly into one of life’s most distressing situations—the death of their baby during pregnancy or shortly after birth. They rarely have any warning or time to prepare. The layettes serve a vital need and the keepsakes are treasured by the families for a lifetime."
—Bonnie Tincher, RNC, CNS, MSN (Now a board member of Angel Layettes)
"I care for families who have experienced the loss of an infant through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death and can provide an appropriately sized, beautifully crafted layette created by caring volunteers. They are so touched and relieved. Infant clothing in these small sizes is not readily available in the retail market. The layettes provide the family with treasured keepsakes that acknowledges and honors the infant’s life." —Grateful Labor & Delivery Nurse
"Angel Layettes add a beautiful lasting memory to a life event that is permeated with profound grief." —Susan S., R.N.
"Our box arrived! It felt like Christmas! I opened each one. Absolutely beautiful! I am so happy to have them. I like how they velcro in the front. It will make handling these little ones easier. I especially like the lavender sleeves as a keepsake 'box.' I will prepare them to hand out with all of the information the parents will need. I know they will be so appreciated. I will keep you up to date on their use and outcomes. Your ladies do beautiful work. Please share with them our appreciation."
—Amy G., RN

Welcome to Angel Layettes
Angel Layettes is an organization dedicated to providing comfort, love, dignity and compassion in the midst of one of life's greatest tragedies—perinatal death.
Angel Layettes provides families with burial layettes, blankets and memorial keepsakes at no charge through hospitals around the country.
Our layette shrouds are hand made and custom designed to provide dignity for the baby and comfort for the family, taking into consideration the special needs of the small and fragile bodies of babies lost to stillbirth and those who die shortly after birth.
If you have recently lost a baby to perinatal death, please visit our Resources page for information concerning grief, grief recovery and available resources.
If you work for a hospital or other healthcare provider and are interested in learning about how you can obtain our layettes and related items, please be sure and visit the Our Services and Contact Us pages of our website.
